Superb precursor to Thomas the Tank Engine!
This is a superb precursor to Thomas the Tank Engine! Someone ought to do an audio voiceover in the spirit of the genre!
This is quite early for an experimental colour film, with a bit of stop motion animation and a good dose of live action, produced by cameraman Henry Charles Fleischer (1925-2010).
The quality of exposure, integrity of the colour, and the shots themselves are exquisite! There are just a few of his earlier films here, but you can see he immediately grasped many film conventions, and produced excellent results!
